quote:Immediately after burning can give false readings due to the temperature of the disc, it is advisable to give the discs 30mins to cool down before testing. The results obtained cannot give any indication as to the aging of the disc as storage conditions, handling and media construction have more bearing on this
Is a low error rate measured immediatly after the burn a warranty for good aging ?
Yes, I believe this is superior rather than waiting too long, as the disc is clean/no scratches, fingerprints (for people who mis-treat their media). The laser heats the dye, burns the pits, and is cooled almost immediately (characteristic of write-once dyes), so as temperature straight after the burn is almost non-evident (in fact, the heat you feel off discs is from the drives temperature itself/centrifugal force, not from the actual laser reading/writing).
